[erlang-questions] active,N — reset counter or increment?

Hi, it is not 100% clear for me from documentation if setting {active,1}
reset active counter to 1 or increment it by 1?


So, when I accept socket, I set:  inet:setopts(Sock, [{active,50}])

then in
handle_info({tcp,Socket,Bin}, ...) ->
  inet:setopts(Socket, [{active,1}]),
  ...


Does it reset active counter to 1 or increment it by 1 from 49 to 50?


If it increments, then can I ever receive {tcp_passive, Socket}  ?
